Norway, Iowa (Aug. 6, 2014) — Parchment-style cooking has long been a sophisticated restaurant method of cooking, but making a wholesome, delicious meal with epicurean flare doesn't have to be difficult. Now, any one can master the art of cooking in steam to create tender, juicy entrées, with Simply Organic's new Steam Gourmet seasoning and parchment kits.


Simply Organic's carefully crafted organic seasonings and parchment bags are the key to mastering the remarkable, time-proven French culinary technique called, "en papillote." This style of cooking, which involves sealing food in parchment paper to cook in the oven with steam, gives busy weeknight cooks an effortless experience with unique flavors, textures and nutritional benefits from the organic foods they love.


"Parchment cooking has always been a popular technique among restaurant chefs," said Ellen Bouchard, Simply Organic's Senior Brand Manager. "With Steam Gourmet, we're helping both novice and savvy cooks prepare a high quality, restaurant-type meal at home with style, ease and clean ingredients."


Each kit contains two expertly-blended seasoning packets and two parchment bags. Just add protein to make two complete entrees that each serve four. To prepare the entrée, season your protein with the organic seasonings, place inside the parchment bag and steam in the oven.


"The flavors swirl inside the sealed bag, intensify and in approximately 30 minutes, an incredibly moist, delicious entrée is ready without the addition of any extra fats or oils. Voilà - the dinner dilemma solved," added Bouchard.


Steam Gourmet is available in four flavors:

Cajun Chicken

Garlic Herb Chicken

Paprika Chicken

Sesame Ginger Salmon
